    Do you use a crush washer with your 3 lug adapter? Torque it down with out one?

    Thanks!

    I believe since it is not required to be timed a crush washer is not required.

    I cleaned the threads real well, then some red lock tight on it, and tightened it down the best I could by hand. Then put some electrical tape on it so I could wrench down on it as much as I could.

    Thinking that should do, I'll update the thread in 4 to 6 months once I actually get the can to see if it backs off or not.
